The 2017 concert theme is “Musings of the Masters,” including selections from Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 and Berlioz's Roman Carnival Overture!
The Spring Young People’s Concert creates memorable musical experiences for students in grades 8-12, showcasing the talents of the winners of the annual Bolz Young Artist Competition.
The corresponding Curriculum Guide will get your students thinking more deeply about the musical selections, creating a richer concert experience. The Guide is based on the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for Music Education and the Comprehensive Musicianship through Performance model.
“It is truly a unique and sacred opportunity when our high school students are able to hear peers perform with such passion and sensitivity.” –La Crosse Central High School Teacher
“The Spring Young People’s Concert is truly an exceptional experience for my students; a chance to see the limitless possibilities ahead of them.” – Stoughton High School Teacher
Seats for the MSO’s youth concerts are $4 per student. Parents, teachers, and chaperones are free of charge with groups over 10 students. Subsidized tickets are available depending on your school’s participation in the free/reduced lunch program.
